Giveaway, Interview, and waiting
Just a few updates as I wait for the release of The Rebuilding Year on Tuesday. For those who would like to score a free copy of the book, there is a draw running on Stumbling Over Chaos which will be open for you to enter until Monday evening. Even if you don’t want to take a shot at a free copy, you should check out this site. Chris and her cats do a lot of free book draws, insightful short reviews of m/m stories, M/M links, crafts, cute cat pics,and a totally hilarious feature called Misadventures in Stock Photography. In this feature Chris’s eagle eye tracks down reuse of the same stock guy pictures in multiple book covers (and she is amazingly good at spotting them.)
For those who don’t already know it, most small publishers do not take their own pictures for photo covers. They use the same stock photo sites, buy the rights to pictures and photoshop them. This means that a hot guy on a stock site can show up in many ways and with many partners. Chris has a real knack for finding and displaying them in all their gorgeousness and absurdity for us. Go, enjoy, and maybe win a book.
In other personal news, I was invited to do an author interview on Books and Tales. I was delighted to find that it has been posted in time to preface the release of The Rebuilding Year. So if you are interested in my thoughts on writing and a few personal details, go check it out.
Hidden Wolves 2 – Unexpected Demands has just popped up in my email, after languishing in proofreading for a few weeks. As soon as I’m done here I will be turning it back around for formatting, the last step, so hopefully we are getting close to release. I was going to blog about the project I’ve been tackling while waiting. But since the manuscript is back, I’ll leave that for another time, and go get Aaron on his way. Mustn’t keep an Alpha waiting.
